Recipe: Dessert - Banana Cupcakes


Banana Cupcakes in the Raw x 2
This recipe was made in a small batch, as I was creating multiple variations of cupcakes at once. Feel free to expand the recipe to suit your needs.

1/2 cup almonds, ground into flour
1/2 cup cashews, ground into flour
1/4 cup mashed banana
1-2 Tbsp. date paste
drizzle of agave
touch of vanilla
sprinkling of cinnamon
dash of sea salt

In a small bowl, combine the nut flours, cinnamon and sea salt. Stir with a whisk or use an electric mixer.

Next, add the mashed banana, about 1 Tbsp. of the date paste and a touch of vanilla. Whisk/mix, paying close attention to the consistency of the batter. Add agave to taste, and more of the date paste, as needed. Whisk/mix to combine. The batter should be moist, but not so damp that it requires "baking" in a dehydrator (although you could if you desire).

Divide the batter in half to make two cupcakes. Form them into cupcake shapes, and decorate to your hearts content.

*Chocolate Chip Banana Variation: add cacao nibs or chunks of a raw chocolate bar to the batter before forming into cupcake shapes.
